The Spirit of P.T. Lives on in Indie Survival Horror Title

The death of Silent Hills hit the gaming community quite hard. The “Playable Teaser” released by Hideo Kojima was such a massive hit that many gamers likely didn’t realize that the game we never got would have been almost completely different from the one we did get. Instead of a first person hallway simulator/nightmare engine, Silent Hills would have been more of an “action horror” game, with combat, monsters, and Norman Reedus wandering around a foggy town with a plank of wood and a screechy radio.

Fortunately for fans of P.T, a new first-person hallway simulator/nightmare engine is in the works via Steam Greenlight, and it’s called Allison Road. Lilith Ltd, the six-person team responsible for carrying on Kojima’s legacy of terror, have just released a pre-alpha gameplay demo on Youtube. The game appears to be less obtuse than P.T, for better or worse, with items, an inventory, voice-over directions, and an end goal. Like a reverse Five Nights at Freddy’s, gamers will be tasked with solving the mysteries in a small British townhouse before 3 AM on the fifth night, and if you fail, then something unspeakable probably happens to you. Probably involving ghost women.

What do you think of this new take on Kojima’s horror teaser masterpiece? Sound off in the comments below!

For J.S. Conner, video games have been a lifelong passion, ever since his grandmother got a Super Nintendo for her birthday and kindly allowed him to play Super Mario All Stars with her. Together, they formed an unstoppable gaming duo, with J.S. Conner handling the bosses and the difficult platforming bits, while his grandmother solved the puzzles and navigated the caves of Zebes, the plains of Hyrule, and the food-themed continents of Super Mario World. Today, he's gotten a bit better at the puzzles, but his grandmother still occasionally invites him over to help her with the next Zelda boss.
